deli( tbl, i )

Deletes the first occurrence of a value from a sequence in a table.
The table.
The value to match and remove.

The deli() function removes the value at the given index of a sequence. All subsequent values in the sequence shift down by one slot to keep the sequence contiguous.

The deli() function returns the object being removed. This can be ignored, tested it to see if the removal was successful, or used as needed.


t = {1, 2, 4, 3, 4}
deli(t, 5)  -- t = {1, 2, 4, 3}
deli(t, 3)  -- t = {1, 2, 3}
